Single-plate check valve is also called single-disc check valve, wafer check valve: it is a valve that can automatically

prevent fluid backflow. The disc of the check valve is opened under the action of fluid pressure, and the fluid flows from the inlet side to the outlet side. When the pressure on the inlet side is lower than that on the outlet side, the valve flap is automatically closed under the action of the fluid pressure difference, gravity and other factors to prevent the fluid from flowing back. It can be installed horizontally or vertically. For vertical installation, pay attention to the water flow from bottom to top, and pay attention to whether the installation direction is correct.

There are two types of check valves. One is installed at the end of the vertical suction pipe in front of the water pump bai. The purpose is to fill the water pump without pumping water once, because the water pump can only be used when there is no water in the pump and the suction pipe in front of the pump. Idling cannot pump water, so the pump must be filled with water to pump out water. The installation of this pump is a method when it is above the liquid level. It is also called a negative pressure method such as pumping water up from a well. Another way to install the pump is that the liquid level is higher than the pump. This method is generally used for secondary water supply. Because the liquid level is higher than the pump, it is not necessary to close the pump outlet valve when starting and stopping the pump, so the check valve should be installed in the The rear of the water pump.
Whether the check valve is installed before or after the valve does not affect its function.

Precautions for installation of single plate check valve

1. The check valve is a one-way valve, so the installation position, height, and direction of inlet and outlet must meet the design requirements, and the direction of medium flow should be consistent with the direction of the arrow marked on the valve body.

2. Check the appearance before installing the check valve. The nameplate of the valve should comply with the current national standard “General Valve Marking” GB 12220. It can be used after all standards are qualified.

1. Do not allow the check valve in the pipeline to bear weight, especially the large check valve, which should have an independent support and not be affected by the pressure generated by the pipeline.
